EASTER CARDS HANDOUT

Thanks to TLS Students Grades 5-8 This week, students in Grades 5-8 are serving as amazing Christian witnesses. After special outreach presentations (see attached pic) on Monday & Wednesday in the church sanctuary, our students were given treats and 10 Easter cards in an envelope to simply distribute them to their neighborhoods as well as their family and friends to invite them to worship Christ this Holy Week. Many, including our teachers and pastors, are doing just that and over 1000+ Easter Cards are being hand delivered. And God is blessing those invites. Great job students and special thanks from Trinity's Evangelism Commission. Like to help these TLS students be Easter angels? Pick up extra invites in the church office and deliver them to your neighbors and friends. Let's keep teaching our kids to share their Holy joy that heaven is ours because of Christ. Jesus said: "You will be my witnesses" (Acts 1:8).

ATTENTION CONFIRMANDS

We are nearing the final preparations for your Confirmation. All confirmation gowns are to be picked up in the school rotunda following the 1 pm Good Friday service on April 19th. If you are unavailable to pick your gown at the time please contact Laura Reinke to make other arrangements at 414-254-3397 or lreinke@trinitywels.com. All confirmands should plan to meet downstairs in the music room/extended care room at 6pm on Thursday April 25th to get dressed in gown and pin flowers on for the service beginning at 6:30pm. Following the service we will have a group picture and practice for the Confirmation service on Sunday. Parents will be allowed to take pictures at this time. Individual pictures will also be taken (exact prices have not been given). On Confirmation Sunday, all confirmands should plan to meet in the same location (music room) by 10:15 to again put gown on and pin flowers on and line-up for procession into church. Please contact Laura Reinke with additional questions.

SAVE PLASTIC GROCERY BAGS!


Plastic Bag Collection Challenge

The classroom that raises the most plastic bags will win our annual ice cream sundae bar!


One of our Day of Giving Activities is to prep plastic bags for making plastic sleeping mats for a local organization that works with homelessness issues in our community. We need as many plastic grocery store-type bages as possible - clean and free of holes or tears. These would be Woodman's, Pick N Save, Meiers, etc. even those nice strong ones from Sendik's and Menards. If in doubt, send it in. Anything we cannot use will be given to Waukesha Recycles who will be doing a recycling assembly for some of the younger grades. It takes 700 bags to make one mat, so we really cannot collect too many!


If you have any questions please feel free to reach out to Rhiannon Cupkie at 414-839-4686. Thank you!

plastic bags are needed!!! Bring in by Friday April 26

Babysitter List

$78.00

$78.00 is the amount needed in your student's lunch account to take hot lunch each day for the rest of the year ( April 18th - May 22nd and does not include extra portions, any current negative balance, or any field trips). Do you know what your student's lunch balance is? Check it out via PowerSchool. Get a check or cash into the school office soon.


Reminder - The Board of Education adopted a policy that when a student’s lunch account becomes negative $20, that student will not be allowed to select the #1 entrée for lunch. However #2, PBJ, and #3, Salad Bar, will still be lunch options for the student.


The staff salaries and food expenses are paid for solely by the funds collected for lunch. Any amounts in your student's lunch accounts that do not get used this year, will roll over into the next school year. You can monitor you students lunch balance and receive email alerts at a threshold of your choosing via Power School. Thank you for keeping positive balances in your student's lunch account!
